I recently stayed at the Horizon Apartments while in Tobago for a week for the Plymouth Jazz Festival. I was so happy with my accomodations! The apartment was very clean, comfortable, and the neighborhood quiet. It is the perfect place to relax and get away from the rush of life. The staff that drove me there was helpful and friendly, and Olga, the woman who watches the property by day, was just a jewel! A great experience!

It was a nice and clean appartement with enough space for all of us (4 persons)and it was well equipped.
When we arrived mrs. Olga had provided bread, cheese, water and
coffee for us and that was a real surprise. (Great service)
Although we were close to the sea it was still a 15 à 20 minutes walk to the nearest beach, but the swimmingpool by the appartement was a good compensation.
We enjoyed our stay in Tobago very much with its beautiful beaches and great nature and hopefully we can ever come back to experience it all over again.
with friendly regards,

From the moment we contacted Hubert at Horizons Tobago everything was taken care of quickly and most efficiently. On arrival at Tobago Airport we were transported to the apartment as arranged without any problem. The apartments are very well maintained,exceptionaly clean and have all the facilities you need for a comfortable stay including air conditioning and cable TV. Olga the housekeeper is always on hand to take care of things and is only too pleased to assist with any washing or ironing you might need done.
The apartments are set in a beautiful quiet residential area of Bacolet and in our opinion a hired car is essential (unless you enjoy walking). All in all we had a fabulous time on the island and the apartment played a big part in that. If we go back in the future we would not hesitate to stay there again and we would recommend it to anyone think about travelling to Tobago.
Thanks Hubert & Olga for helping to make our time in Tobago so enjoyable.

Lovely neighborhood location a short walk from Bacellet Bay Beach and 20 minute hike to Scarborough, Horizon Tobago was fabulouse to move into, relax in, swim at, and use a base for Tobago adventures. A great value for the location - 2 bedrooms, large living space, terrific maid service, and a lovely yard.
I hope to be back someday.

We (4 adults) made a last minute booking at Horizon Apartments, because our original booking had let us down. This was our second visit to Tobago, and the magic was still there.
We were a little dubious to say the least, and avidly read the Trip Advisor comments - after we had booked! But what a surprise! Contrary to other reviewers comments, we were whisked away to the apartment by the driver from Thrifty Car Rentals, who even stopped at Penny Savers (the largest supermarket on the island) so we could buy some beers and provisions. We need not have bothered, because on arrival there was milk, orange juice, tea, coffee, and bread in a 'welcome' pack'.
The apartments are in a residential area, surrounded by pretty gardens. The gate is kept locked at all times for security. The apartments, of which there are 4 (we had a first floor 2-bed) were clean, albeit a little dated. The air con must have been fixed (see previous Trip Advisor reviewers comments) because it worked perfectly and the TV had enough channels to please everyone There was a good supply of cooking pots and pans, although a limited amount of plates - but we managed. there was constant hot water at all times. We stayed there the two weeks prior to Carnival, and for one week had the place to ourselves. The other week we shared with 4 lovely Canadians. The last two apartments remained empty for the whole of our stay. Olga, the housekeeper, looked after us well, and did everything she could to make our stay welcoming. Our only problem was that the safe did not work, and was one with very difficult combinations - not 'user friendly'.
The pool was a good size and in the sunshine, although it could do with some attention to the base, and some general maintenance. It was cleaned regularly by the pool man who visited most days. If all apartments were full, there would be a scramble for sun loungers, as there were not that many that were not damaged.
There is a lovely beach within walking distance, but if you wish to go further, you need to hire a car or call for a taxi (there is a phone in the apartment). We hired a car from Sheppy and got a great deal and a very new smart car. We would use Sheppy again.
We visited the Donkey Cart restaurant - again about 15 minutes walk away, and could definitely recommend a visit here. The food was great and Adrian is a character you must meet!
To summarise, the Horizon Tobago Apartments may not be as 'plush' as some of the other apartments, but they are clean and very reasonably priced and we enjoyed our stay there.
